Battery drain when no data connection available

My Evo does not get a consistent data connection where I work. Once Doggcatcher adds an item to its queue, it will keep the phone alive (screen dimmed) trying to download the file and never times out. After about an hour or two the phone dies.

Issue: Items in the Queue are downloaded indefinitely and without regard for data connection.

Thanks

Phone dim

The phone will remain dim when the files are being downloaded, so if it's dim, then there's a download in progress.

You could enable the 'only on power' preference which will prevent the items from downloading unless you're on power. They'll stay in the queue but the screen won't remain on (dim).
